Idiocracy -Track By Track:
1 Rapid Fire
Teemu: As a album starter we wanted something like fist in face. Very rapid song to play too.
 
2 Burn Perfection
Esa: Maybe the pursuit of perfection is not just good thing. It can also be a disease.
 
3 Stranger Roots
Petteri: Weird tale about AI growing into people´s minds. True of fantasy, you decide and then we´ll see.
Teemu: This is pretty rare one, I mean it is more like mid-tempo song which we don´t have too many.
 
4 Hate of Hatred
Esa: Sometimes you can't move forward in life if you can't get rid of "Hating hate". Kind of hc-thrash with a melodic chorus. This is also the "Official Video" song.
 
5 Fleshless
Teemu: Fast song with some edge of death metal. This was first song from this album which we played live
Petteri: About ancient beings who have lost their physical self and try to possess humans. Rulers of the air, demons, satan.
 
6 Preaching to the Choir
Teemu: A bit different song with pretty straight melody.
Petteri: You will only listen to a message you want to hear, not real facts.
 
7 Inviting Darkness
Petteri: Mess with things you don´t understand and get consumed by them.
Teemu: One of my personal favourites from this album. Judas Priest meets thrash, hahah!!!
 
8 Limited
Esa: To close in and try to get away from it. Life with the devil until then.
 
9 Thoughts and Prayers
Teemu: As title says, "good" thoughts or prayers help no-one, only real acts can be helpful
Esa: We played something impressively massive and quite simple
 
10 Bow To Disorder
Petteri: They´ rule with magic and electricity. A thing said about the druids in ancient history and brought to this day meaning media. They brandish their wands made out of holly wood´.
 
11 Zombie Walk
Teemu: Observations about how people may follow some social media and act like zombies. At he end of the song one guitar melody is pretty near to one zombie movie soundtrack...
 
12 Cast Out From Idiocracy
Petteri: One´s outburst of frustration in a world of idiots and wanting to get out. Being different from the others. Quite prophetic now as I wrote the lyrics (in 2018) way before this idiocy we see now.
 
Teemu: Our "official video" song with strong opening riff. Even some groove is there, with Bloodride style of course!
